This pixel protocol was designed by Sunmoon Microelectronics in China. SM16714, also known as SM16714P, is very similar to, SM16712, but is dedicated to RGBW. The control circuit comes in a SOP8 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.
SM16714 has the ability to digitally control the current of the connected LEDs. Use the 5-bit current control per color to lower the brightness without sacrificing resolution, and tune the current of individual colors, allowing for more accurate color mixing. This individual current control can be set when configuring your PixLite Mk3 controller.
|Per Color: 5 Bits|
Output Pixel Voltage
|5 - 15V|
|Up to 34fps|
Data Transfer Rate
Redundant Data Line
Considerations for Use
- Up to 15V, allowing for long cable lengths
- High PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 34fps
- Presence of white LED allows for higher brightness and more color mixing options
- Data-only restricts refresh rates to be limited by the speed of the protocol, which can be slow
- Only 8 bits of data for each color makes dimming curves less smooth
- No redundancy in data
